What our clients have to say...

  • I am 58 years of age and in reasonable physical condition. I am really a beginner, but after my first few classes with Gillian at Norden Farm (Maidenhead), I already noticed some very positive changes: Firstly, following an inner ear infection a few years ago, my balance had never really recovered. For example when getting dressed I have had to sit down in order to put on knickers or trousers as I could not balance on one leg. After just half a dozen classes I noticed big improvements in my balance, and I can now hop around to put on my underwear like I used to do years ago! Secondly, I have noticed that I am getting stronger especially when standing up out of a low seat. Previously I found I was having to push myself up using my arms, whereas now I can just stand up. Thirdly, I have noticed much more flexibility in my neck and shoulders, especially when driving I can turn to look further over my shoulder at those tricky junctions. Each of these positive changes are very tangible improvements in my wellbeing (balance, core strength and flexibility), and I am a total convert to Pilates as you have been teaching it, and I look forward to further positive changes. Thank you.

  • It has been some years since I did Pilates, but now after a year of beginning again I am feeling so much better! It really helps with my well being, both physically and mentally.

    Norden Farm client, 2016

  • For eighteen months I had been suffering from sciatica and had difficulty standing and walking. Following a recommendation to try Pilates and a statement that Gillian was a very good tutor, I joined her 'Beginners Pilates' class at Maidenhead's Norden Farm in September 2015. An MRI scan of my spine had shown stenosis and some spinal curvature; I had had a spinal injection which had not cured the problem; my doctor had suggested that I might apply for a 'disabled badge' for the car, but I just wanted to be able to walk again. I found that the Pilates improved my movement and made me feel better so that a return visit to my osteopath in January was much more successful. I have now added some of the Pilates exercises to my daily exercise routine and am able to stand straight, walk and feel generally much better, thanks in great part to Pilates.

  • Thank you for your efforts in getting me up to a reasonable level of competence in Pilates. In the last couple of years you have transformed me from being obese and with restricted movement to a reasonably fit, active, stronger and much more flexible individual. I enjoyed our sessions and will miss them. You have inspired me to want to further develop my Pilates skills and I regret that you will not be available to work with me.

  • I was about to give up playing the cello due to shoulder pain but thanks to Pilates with Gillian plus my sissel cushion, not only am I not giving up but I'm thinking of buying a new cello!

  • Several years ago I was encouraged by my daughter to join Gillian's pilates class. I had a bad back and the beginnings of osteoarthritis in my hip. After a few months I was more flexible, my bad back was better, and has stayed in good shape, and my hip has not deteriorated. Exercises can be performed at different levels, depending on one’s fitness and expertise and each class is good fun. I can highly recommend Gillian's classes. She is a great teacher.

  • Thank you John for spending the time and sharing your expertise with me over the last few years. I have really enjoyed my sessions, even though sometimes the sessions were tough! You are able to tailor the session to our specific needs and always vary the session to make them bespoke.
